US Congressman: Russian fleet is being restored, and we are chewing snot

45
The American edition of Defense News publishes material with statements by US Rep. Joe Courtney. Courtney is on the board of the naval committee the fleet (subcommittee on submarine forces) of the American Parliament. The congressman is sounding the alarm that even in the second year of Trump’s presence in the presidency, the United States didn’t have a “clear strategy for counteracting Russia's recovering navy.”


Congressman:
We see the inability of the administration (Trump) to promote a firm and consistent policy in response to the Kremlin’s belligerent behavior towards the West. Trump still hopes that Putin will become his reliable partner in international affairs.


Courtney:
And this position is disturbing. After all, Russia is provocatively interfering in the internal affairs of the United States and allies. Russian submarines are present at the exercises (NATO), watching our actions.


According to the congressman, for the first time since the end of the Cold War, Russian submarines and reconnaissance ships are coming "so close" to the American shores.

US Congressman: Russian fleet is being restored, and we are chewing snot


Of material:
The British Royal Navy's public disclosure that Russian submarines were near submarine cables in the North Atlantic is now a new link in this chain of problems. These channels of communication are a vital link between North America and Europe, the two largest economic zones in the world. Despite the spread of satellite communications, more than 90 percent of Internet traffic, telephone communications and even telegraph signals pass through submarine cables. The lines remain as vulnerable today as in World War I, when the British fleet broke German telegraph cables lying on the seabed. Is this updated Russian activity the interception of cable communications or is it aimed at researching them so that they can be more easily broken during the conflict? - a question whose whole drama is difficult to overestimate.


According to the congressman, the Trump administration is silently watching the restoration of the Russian fleet. Translated into Russian: chewing snot ...

      What's the news? The American asks for a bigger dough. And here is another solution. Try to buy production on the vine. What was practiced in the 90s. And all the problems of the staff will disappear. So don’t chew the snot. What do I recommend? sad

        Dear 210okv (Dmitry, as I understand it), you - what is sarcasm, understand? Yes, with such a "recovery" - We are generally without the Fleet - we will soon remain. Just do not need, about the "continental power", as some citizens like to say. A country - washed by the three Oceans and fourteen seas - can be called a "continental" not quite smart person. hi

          So we do not violate, so what? The Convention deals with the rules of passage through the straits of "guests", and not for the demonstration of military force. hi As for the Black Sea, as a closed one, it is enough to take something from a school textbook on geography and look at a map of the region. laughing

      why do we need a huge fleet, because we still need to maintain it, we need to take it not with quantity but with quality, I think Zircon will change the situation at sea, as when Maxim machine gun was on the field

      And what about one "Ash"? Okay, at least the long-awaited “Kazan” is on the way. Striped have how many Virgins, and every year arrives .. If you would build in Russia like that, then yes! But this will certainly never happen !!! Those ships that I have in login, they were put into operation in 4 pieces per year. It’s nice to remember. Then it was Stripy, specifically squealing.

      Why have a huge fleet like the USA. It is intended for them to capture foreign territories. It is unnecessary for the defense of the country, cruise missiles and the missiles themselves will make for the fleet. The fleet is not a needle you can’t hide, they all lead. Even the aircraft will not wake up in the affected area, will release on this fleet, they will do all the work. All billions will sink. The Americans understand that the fleet is needed to cut the budget, so they knock out money. Today, one camel is enough to bring a rocket and the aircraft carrier will never go to sea. You sit, you’ll cut rubbish, go to the bazaar, buy a goose for yourself and set your brains on it.

    And what can the Trump administration somehow prevent? And of course, it is the United States that intentionally has about 300 warships and this is possible for it, but of course we cannot. Yes, you went to ........., to ....... and so on. Yes, and you can capture the same shit and democrats from all over Europe.

      Russia is recovering so slowly - why should America make a fuss, and make a fuss every time. They know that Russia is not going to attack, but only to defend its territory. If we wanted to attack, they would have long lines in bunkers and bomb shelters, like discounted goods in supermarkets. They all climbed underground from one DPRK. Go and tell the Americans, they are threatening, and they themselves take two pairs of diapers with them.

      So the admiral, the usual lobbyist of the military-industrial complex.
      Congressman Courtney, a graduate of Tufts University in 1975 in Boston, earned a law degree from the University of Connecticut in 1978. He lives in Vernon with his wife Audrey Courtney and their two children, Robert and Elizabeth.

    And tomorrow, another congressman who oversees the Air Force will say something like this, that our strategists are already so insolent that they literally flutter over the White House.
    Then the curator of the Ground Forces will take the floor.
    And flea flew shaggy over the bumps.

    Yeah, and then it suddenly turns out that Trump has a space fleet prepared for our fleet. From an altitude of 200-300 km. his spaceships will crush us, as in a dash ... So what about Amer "snot" .., as they say "check a hundred times and never trust the Yankees."

    Most likely, Poroshenko will begin military operations in the east, and the destroyers stood up as a guarantor and support, in order to give more confidence (It is clear that as soon as it gets hot they retreat). But right now they are a good catalyst Tipo America with us and so on. etc. .. And most likely, everything will begin a week before March 18.

      But this is the logic. Parasha traveled to the States, frayed in New York, met with whom it is necessary (with amami). Ships came to the World Cup. Parasha arrives in Kiev and signs the law on the disintegration of Donbas. Today, the GDP is collected by the Security Council of Russia. Agenda: the situation in Syria and Ukraine.
      Ahead of March 18 is the election of the President of the Russian Federation. Therefore, after the 8 of March, a provocation should follow ... The bucket is ready for it: forces are pulled to the borders of the LPR-DPR.
      And our reaction is already being traced too: the boats are preparing at sea ... Let's see what happens next.
